Micro Mania Film Festival

Created by filmmakers for filmmakers, MicroMania Film Festival, screens a mix of domestic and international films, of up to 5 minutes in length. MicroMania offers micro-short filmmakers the opportunity to show their work independent of films with a longer run-time. Often shortchanged within the juried category of short film, micro-shorts must be recognized as a genre unto themselves.

It is our goal to have your work seen, appreciated and celebrated. Our fee helps cover overhead and costs related to growing this opportunity so that, in the years to come we may eventually offer free submission and cash rewards.

All official selections will be screened during the festival on November 16 2019 at our inaugural MicroMania Film Festival. Additionally, award winners including Best Micro-Narrative, Best Micro-Documentary, Best Micro-Animated Short, Best Micro-Experimental Short, Best Micro-Animated Film, and Audience Choice will be streamed on our website and promoted across our social networks. 

MicroMania film festival will also be recorded for later broadcast across the MeTV network via WBBZ-TV. Officially selected films are welcome to opt-out of streaming and/or broadcast. We're happy to use a still image of your choice with your film's title and a URL. 

Our judges are industry professionals, filmmakers and film festival lovers. We look forward to seeing your work.
